          7/16” Arbor Adapter Included
          Haven’t used mine yet but it looks and feels like Ridgid quality. I bought this kit mainly for the (2) 4Ah batteries, however, I can see this tool as a safer alternative to an angle grinder for certain jobs. Mine came with a 7/16” arbor adapter in order to use discs by other manufacturers.

            Great saw
            Very simple to use and high rpm's for quick cuts. Another reviewer stated that "Battery will not let the blade guard lay flat". This is why its helpful to take a few minutes to read over the operation portion of the user manual, folks. The wheel guard rotates by hand into four different positions to adjust the angle. I attached pictures demonstrating the range between positions one and four. All in all, it's a versatile, easy to use saw that packs a punch.

              Amazing tool and super compact size
              I bought this a month ago with the extra free battery kit. It's an amazing tool, specially when you install custom blades. I ordered a 80 mm 3-1/8" saw blade that fits, a bit tight to insert but it fits. 3" inch blades are much more expensive. The reversible feature is great, I can put the blade to cut away from me. Cut wood great and other materials with the right blade. The guard is rotating to adjust to your perfect angle.

                Poor Design, Bad.... Worthless Tool.
                Engineer / Design Team went to sleep on this one! Never held a Tool ! Battery will not let the blade guard lay flat. By far the worst Ridgid tool I own. Glad it wasn't my 1st... And I own a lot! I owned one of the 1st Makita Mini saws for cutting wall plates for alarms in the 70's. So I brought this one. Don't even want to sell to someone else at a Yard sale! Does Ridgid need Real Working Craftsman to test their Tools!!!?? Missed on this one!!! Still a Ridgid Guy! Need a Mini saw!

                  Battery NOT on the way!
                  I first thought the design was flawed as the battery was getting in the way. BUT after reading someone else's review, I found out the the entire guard can rotate in 4 different angles up to about 45° to make up for this! Instantly went from a 2* to 5* product! I also hope this helps others because this is a great tool!

                    Great tool. Now includes 7/16 and 3/8 arbor washer
                    Love this tool. Especially that ridgid listened and added a 3/8 and 7/16 arbor washer. It cuts a ton better than my m12 cut off tool. Does not cut off or struggle going through materia.

                      This unit is awesome!!
                      I bought this unit and after I did, I started reading the reviews. Me being the type of person I am, I started messing with the head of the unit and found if you apply some turning pressure to it, it will change the angle in witch it cuts. So for everyone giving a 1 star due to the battery being in the way, this unit has the capabilities of clicking into 4 different angles. I hope this review helps anyone with this "issue".

                        The tool has potential
                        Reviewing the saw before deciding to purchasing I found no legible PT# for the 3" discs. That seems to be a draw back. Hope the picture help to find a vendor that can support the consumables..

                          A tool you didn't know you needed
                          I purchased this tool with a single project in mind. We were planning to install Vinyl plank flooring in our “Primary Bedroom” but naturally I wanted to try it out first. After buying a 3’’ cutting disc assortment, I tested this on door trim, #5 Rebar (⅝’’ Diameter), ½’’ PVC pipe, 7/16’’ OSB plywood and ⅛’’ Masonite Hardboard using a Ridgid 6 aH Octane battery with great success! The standard door trim was too thick to cut all the through, but it was still a clean cut. I was able to cut through the rebar with little wear and tear to the cutting disc and no stalling from the Sub-Compact, brushless motor. However, I did need to bend the rebar at the cut in order to finish cutting all the way through. Once I bent it down, I was easily able to cut the remaining ⅛’’. Cutting the rebar still made a good amount of sparks, but they are forced away from your body. The wood and plastic blade I used to cut through the OSB plywood had no issues, slow downs and did so with ease. The dust was kicked forward of the tool which kept the cutting surface free and clean of the debris. Overall, I would recommend this tool for anyone who already owns Ridgid Tools and needs to make minor cuts. Are you going to build an entire house with this tool…. No. But will you be able to complete the punch out task, do a quick remodel, avoid making an excessive trip to the saw cut station… Absolutely! Because this tool is cordless, you aren’t tied down by a cord. You can easily fit it into your tool box without adding to much bulk or weight. This will make quick jobs even faster with just as accurate cuts! Because Ridgid offers 100% compatibility on all their batteries, you do not have to worry about buying a special battery if you already own one. I will have to hand it to Ridgid on this tool, this is a tool that I didn’t know I needed until I used it.
